Regular price $800 Sale

Description

Adire Eleko is a style of Nigerian indigo textiles crafted with complex designs of symbolic patterns. It is made with resistance-dye techniques using hand-painted cotton cloth that is then dipped in natural indigo dyes. The detail in the designs and the richness of the indigo in older textiles is rarely found in modern designs. This textile, a true work of art, is highlighted by an iconic signature of the artisan.
